Understanding UH Business Course Outline for Spring, ‘08

Understanding UH Business is a seven-week core course designed with the UH business staff in mind. When working or processing a transaction, have you ever asked yourself…
  • Why can’t I just choose any account to process a voucher?
  • What is budget checking and why is it necessary?
  • What is a liability? What’s an asset?
  • Why is it important to read a balance sheet?
  • What is the importance of fund codes?
  • Who is Accounts Payable and why do they tell me what to do?
  • What’s the Finance department’s role here at UH? What’s my role? How do we work together?
  • How can I optimize my use of the university’s financial system?
  • Why do we have so many mandatory training classes?
  • Why are there so many administrative rules and processes and who makes all of these rules anyway?

If you or your staff ever wanted to know the answers to the above questions, then the Understanding UH Business seminar will provide a comprehensive explanation and a unique perspective on these subjects. The class instructors will walk participants through how transactions flow, who processes them, why transactions and the procedures for them exist, and what is the global effect – both internally and externally-of these transactions that flow through various departments and the PeopleSoft System.

The spring course will meet in the HR training room #341 (3rd floor) of the McElhinney building every Friday (seven consecutive Fridays total) from 9am until noon.
